I liked this story, thought it was fun, however one key element of the story is just dropped with no finish. I would have rated it higher if it had been resolved. Had some really fun interactions between Trent and Carrie as they realize their relationship is more than a business arrangement....more

After raising his brother and sister when his parents died, Brody Brown never expected himself to truly get involved in a relationship that would requ After raising his brother and sister when his parents died, Brody Brown never expected himself to truly get involved in a relationship that would require anything more than some shared intimacy. When he meets Elise Sorenson for the first time, he thinks he has had a glimpse of an angel. His new neighbor and her six year old daughter continue to draw his attention and now for the first time in his forty years he is wondering if they are what he has been missing all along.
I love this story, Brody is a charmer and Elise is shy and quite opposite of Brody but they work. The one thing I really enjoy about this story is it takes the time to unfold, like when you meet someone for the first time and that hesitant kiss with promise that it leads to something more, only to wait in anticipation to see if it actually does. Beautiful story.
***reread, this is such a great story. Brody is just yummy, he is badass but also a gentle giant....more

Now they have to convince friends and family the engagement is real and try not to act on their feelings for one another along the way.
I reread this one because I had never written a review, this was probably my least favorite in the series. Keely is just so brash than I never warmed up to her....more

Wonderful read, my favorite story ended up with Blair which was kind of funny because in the beginning hers was the one I was least looking forward too. Something about Rand McKay though, WOW. All three are really good though and each one has a different desire....more

I decided to reread because I did not have a written review on this one. Brit is running from an ex who will stop at nothing to get her back. River is pure primal alpha, he has an interesting nickname for Brit that raises a few chuckles and they way he goes about setting to claim Brit as his own is hilarious....more

Jessica Sterns has patiently been waiting for her new boss to arrive so she can get to work, when Mac intervenes after a local comes on too strong she finds that she may have just found her first lover in the flesh.
When Mac realizes the minx with an attitude in front of him is actually his new cook, who he thought was a man, he flatly tells her to get on the bus and head out of town. Jessica wont let the fact that she is a woman stand in her way of a new life, not one to stand done she turns the table on Mac citing a violation of her contract if he refuses. All Mac has to do is get through is two weeks before he can send her on her way, but it only takes a few minutes in her company to know he wants her forever.
Loved this book, it is raw and intense. Jessica is an innocent in only one way, but the rest of her is pure Vixen. I have to say the way Sarah McCarty wrote Mac just oozes charisma. This is one book you have to clear your calendar and just plan on sitting and reading, because you can't wait to see what happens next.
**Reread, this is a fantastic read, a sizzler to be sure. Mac keeps a lot of his emotions in except when it comes to the bedrooom. Loved Jessie she is a breath of fresh air....more

Two years laterA vision of beauty and grace has followed Beau Luckadeau's memories since a drunken one night stand had him waking up to an empty bed. Two years later, Beau has given up hope that he will ever see her again and has decided to move on with his life. When he finds what he believes is a puny ranch hand by a cut fence on his land, he blows a fuse only to find that is a hot tempered brunette with a rifle pointed at him and a bit of shooting in her wake, who looks remarkably like the woman of his dreams.

In such a close community it is not difficult to find themselves thrown together, and once he gets a look at her daughter her past may come back to haunt her.
I thought this started off with a bang, literally. Overall a funny romantic story, but there was a lot of runaround before getting to heart of the matter between them so I give it a 3.75. ...more
